I am a Dentistry Fraidy Cat.

I love being a patient of Dr. Forster’s. I am sedated and wake up and the work is finished. This is really heaven for me. The girls in the office are so friendly and wonderful.

Dr. Forster and her staff overcame a lot of negative issues with me.

I no longer loose sleep the night before a dental visit. I no longer put off dental work until it becomes an emergency.
– Janet G.

There has never been a wait; I’m usually in and out in 45 minutes.
